seasonal cooking

we've had some really great weather here lately, and the trees are really looking beautiful, and i forget to take pictures of them every time! (i need to start carrying my camera with me all the time).
i spent part of yesterday afternoon in the kitchen ...

i decided that i want to start cooking some bulk meals, things that i can portion out and freeze, so i'll have some yummies always available, or at the very least, w/o having to go through the whole cooking experience for every meal. yesterday's recipe? a hearty lentil soup. the nice thing about lentils is that they don't have to presoak. i cooked this in my 8 qt. pot, so, i filled a lot of freezer sandwich bags ... and then, after all this, i did something insanely brilliant! (i left the freezer door cracked open about 2" all night!!!) i have frost now

what's a posting w/o some fish photos? i sat infront of my tank for a good while, trying to get a good picture. out of about 30 shots, i got a few that i liked. most of the pictures are blurred, or the fish is swimming out of the frame. i had to settle for composition by the way, this is one of the good shots!
